The Cause of the Cursed Jazan

“Jazan, wait for me!” The young Kyrii glanced behind him with a sigh. “We’ve had to stop six times now! You’re too slow, Leta!” “It’s not my fault you’ve got longer legs than me!” the Yellow Kyrii stuck her tongue out at her older brother. “Maybe if you didn’t run so fast-!”

Hidden in the Faerie Caverns

"Do I have to? Do I really have to?" I asked my owner. Sophie gave me a firm look and nodded. "It's not scary, don't worry. You only have to take 3 turns and you'll be there. If you can find your way in the caverns, then you will be awarded with a prize. Just picture it, Laffy_Taffy! You can get beautiful glowing wings! Or a faerie caverns stamp! Just imagine the possibilities!"

The Thief

They say it only happens once every eighty years. The Prism. The sky is so much larger, so much more vast, than I can even comprehend. It glows in hues of purple and pink, silver and navy; it's like tender veins, reflections in the ocean, or millions of lost stars waiting to die. I’ve sat in this exact spot every night for weeks, doing just what I’m doing now, but never before has it been like this.

One Last Game

The three by three grid of raised stone squares was mocking me at this point. It was clearly a puzzle, as there were dozens of other identical puzzles scattered throughout Neoquest III. But with those other puzzles there was usually a cipher, or a scroll with a hint, or something that would help you figure out the answer. I had scoured the entire area looking for anything that could tell me the answer to the puzzle, but to no avail.

The three by three grid of raised stone squares was mocking me at this point. It was clearly a puzzle, as there were dozens of other identical puzzles scattered throughout Neoquest III. But with those other puzzles there was usually a cipher, or a scroll with a hint, or something that would help you figure out the answer. I had scoured the entire area looking for anything that could tell me the answer to the puzzle, but to no avail. The puzzle itself seemed to be an afterthought by the developers. It was in an empty room off of a random hallway in the coliseum level. An ear piercing shriek interrupted my thoughts. I turned around just in time to see a Giant Frost Weewoo come flying at me, its deadly talons raised. I unsheathed my sword but it was faster, and it pummeled me to the ground. My Virtual Reality Suit was well-worn and cheap to begin with, so I only felt a dull pressure on my stomach as my avatar was repeatedly slammed into the stone floor and raked with scythe-like talons. I turned down the volume on my headset so I could think past the constant ear-piercing shrieks of the Weewoo. I had dropped my sword when the Weewoo tackled me, so I just wildly flailed until I scored a hit on it.

The Best Soups for the Neopian Holidays
When the holidays come, there is absolutely nothing my neopets and I enjoy more than a good bowl of warm soup. It is a hardy, delicious meal that we love to eat around the fireplace. After spending all day at the Winter Starlight Celebration, having a random snowball fight, or playing a ton of winter themed games, it’s nice to warm up with a bowl of soup.

All of the furniture, however, had been moved to the edges of the room. Acknowledging himself, he noticed he was sitting on a wooden chair, his arms and legs tied down by rope. Hannah was next to him, placed in the same position. However, she had not awoken yet.

Beneath the Haunted Woods: Part One
An eerie and unnerving silence filled the air as the siblings made their way through the withering, creaking forest of pale trees. A thick mist shrouded the woodland in an impenetrable cloud. The lanterns did little to fend off the low visibility; the threesome walked cautiously, taking every vigilant step, minding the path ahead and the ground beneath.
